Electronic Patient Files
The healthcare system has reached an impasse: vanishing government support, escalating costs, aging demographics, and the expense of keeping up with medical progress has forced everyone working in the field to find innovative new ways to improve workflow processes. It is possible to handle administrative tasks and medical/therapeutic care more efficiently - demonstrated here by Feldkirch Regional Hospital and their leading-edge IT approach.
Thanks to electronic patient files, both the quality of our medical care as well as the way we are able to provide information to our patients, medical personnel and administrative staff has greatly improved.
